        Moron probably had himself convinced that President Pelosi would make him the National Security Adviser when it was all over.

                It recalls to mind Ronald Reagan's quote that the scariest words in the English language are "Hello, I'm from the government and I'm here to help you."

                  Has anyone else noticed that the 100 year old Tuskegee airman from the SOTU presentation looks to be far more prepared for actual military service than Vindman?

                    Instead of looking like a patriotic military man who knew what he was talking about in the image of a Colonel Oliver North, Vindman came off looking like a corrupt deep state bureaucrat.

                        He had been reprimanded several times for making disparaging remarks about America while in the presence of Russian officials....must have learned that from the same guy who said "Tell Vladimir I'll have more time after the election".....

                          Was it: "Tell Vladimir I'll have more flexibility after this election."?
                          Obama was a traitor to America .... and that could only happen when you have a Democrat party of betrayers in league with a Pravda style media. Thank goodness for the Republican President, Donald Trump. Let's hope in 2024 we can put such an unyielding "warrior" in the Whitehouse.

                            battle general is badass. 409 combat missions.

                            and the real question is not why Trump fired fat azz, the question is why fat ass has been sitting in the same position since 2008? the army rotates people every three to four years no matter what.

                            if they had sent back someplace away from all the donuts in 2011 or so, maybe he'd still look like a soldier. I doubt it though.

                              You're going to scream.... but he was scheduled to leave in 3 months anyway... to attend resident War College. He'll make O-6 for sure.

                                wasn't he scheduled to leave in 2011?

                                we will see if he can pass a PT test.

                                I was never in the military and I'm screaming. Can't we send him to an Arctic Weather Station or trade him to the Taliban for something? (like a carpet or a few of those hats they wear?)

                                  This became a problem in the early 90's... Up until then, the Army WAR College had been for WARRIORS (i.e. combat arms branches of the Army), but people didn't think that was fair and prevented non-combat arms guys from rising to the top, soooo, we started allowing Chaplains and "Vindman's" (FAOs who will never go back to their combat arms branches) and we got a new, friendlier, Army that is more fair... at the expense of actual warfighters, and the nation.
